Kapstream recognises the importance of societal and workplace freedom and equality and in its operation has adopted the same approach as its parent organisation Janus Henderson Investors to identify and combat instances of modern slavery. Kapstream is fortunate to operate with a relatively simple supply chain predominantly comprising business and professional services organisations, and has minimal contact with countries and sectors that are generally considered to have a risk of modern slavery. Notwithstanding this, throughout the last financial year, we have continued to take a risk-based approach to assessing potential occurrences of modern slavery and human trafficking within our supply chain.
In accordance with the Australian Modern Slavery Act of 2018 – and in collaboration with our parent organisation Janus Henderson Investors – Kapstream has published a mandatory statement that sets out the steps our organisation has taken to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking evident in any part of our business operations and supply chain. The statement is available at the link below. Please reach out to your usual Kapstream contact if you have any questions in relation to our stance on seeking to identify and eliminate instances of modern slavery.
